Installable with the Extension Manager


Creates a carousel displaying the images attached to the current page in a customized order and with optional captions. The macro uses the Bootstrap Carousel component. It is an alternative to the XCarousel Application and to the Attachment Gallery Macro. It was created in order to harness the provided Bootstrap Carousel JavaScript library.


  • Display caption around images using the figcaption HTML tag
  • Control the image display order
  • Switch to full screen view
  • Stores additional metadata about an image in a dedicated field, such as its license, its source, etc.


  • Attach images to a page
  • Use the macro as follows:

Optionally, the caption and the order used for displaying the images can be customized by adding instances of XWiki.ResourceMetadataClass to the page.
